1  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Neighbourhood disappeared! on: October 15, 2008, 01:40:10 pm
Yesterday I was playing my legacy family in a custom neighbourhood, I saved the game as I normally do and exited.
Today I ran the game and went to select the neighbourhood, but it's completely disappeared off the list.
I checked in my documents and the files for the neighbourhood are still there and look normal.
But I ran simPE and although the neighbourhood appears on the browser it is called 'unknown' and says it was created yesteday at 19:30 :|
Have I lost the neighbourhood completely? Or is there something I can do?
2  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Maiden name on: October 13, 2008, 05:26:47 pm
My legacy founder married a townie whose surname I never noted. I'm attempting to make a family tree which will include the surname's of all the spouses. Is there a way I can find out her maiden name?
3  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Discussion / No headlines on: February 16, 2008, 12:03:11 pm
I've had bon voyage for a long time, but only just sent some sims on holiday. Everything was going fine, but after a while the headlines (things they're talking about/thinking above their heads) just disappeared. Anyone else had this happen or know I can fix it?
4  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Glitch...? on: January 29, 2008, 01:09:28 pm
Sorry if this has already been answered, but I couldn't find anything to help in my search.

The other day I installed the Teen Style Stuff pack, the first time it was installing my computer crashed and I had to restart it. When it had restarted I checked the program files for the Teen Style pack and they were there, but I thought it might not have finished installing, so I deleted all the files there and unistalled the pack (I had made a backup of my game before trying to install it). I tried installing it again, and it installed all the way up to installing the patch for the seasons ep, when it got to this it said there was an error and I may need to uninstall and then reinstall Seasons, then it uninstalled the Teen Style Stuff. I tried again, but it still wouldn't work, so I uninstalled and then reinstalled Seasons. It seemed to work fine, so I entered the game, but at lot of my items were missing (and doing the flashing blue thing). I exited the game and as I had made a back up earlier I renamed this 'The Sims 2' hoping the game would now read that folder instead. So I started up the game again and this time even more of my custom content was missing (hair, eyes etc). In the end I had to system restore the computer back to Friday before I tried installing Teen Style Stuff, everything in the game seems to be working ok now, other than the ground.

When I loaded a neighbourhood, the ground (which was covered in snow) was covered in writing. I entered a lot to see if the problem would be the same there. The grass which was supposed to be covered in snow was black with writing all over it and the pavement was white with writing all over it. It goes back to normal when I enter buy mode. I don't know if it does it when there's not snow as I have not entered a lot where it wasn't winter.

Does anyone know why it's doing this or how I can fix it?

It was suggested to me that the problem could be that the game couldn't find the texture for snow so replaced it with words. I was told to change the season to summer and then back to winter, but this is what I get when I click on the seasons changer:

I've also been told it may be a good idea to uninstall and reinstall the game, but I'm wondering if I'd have to uninstall all of the games? (as I have all the eps). I also have a lot of custom content and sims (which I'm not quite sure how to extract). Is there any way I could fix this problem without having to reinstall?

Thanks for any help.
5  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Homework problem on: November 10, 2007, 09:03:22 am
My sim children will come home with invisible homework, they'll put it down like normal but then I can't click on it or see it.
I also have another homework problem, one of them had homework that was actually visible so I told him to do it, he started to but then got stuck and wandered off. I tried clicking on it again and it wouldn't let me click on it, so I used the move objects cheat to move it into the house. I notcied instead of saying 'homework' it says 'lovely set defter'
Any ideas of what I can do to fix it?
Thanks.
6  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Sim won't move on: October 25, 2007, 11:46:28 am
Having problems with one of my sims.
Currently he is on holiday and I told him to go fishing, he wouldn't move and now won't move at all to do anything even sit down. He does interact with other sims and teleports, but this is it.
I would normally delete him and wait for him to turn up in the front garden but I'm worried that being on holiday will effect this.
What should I do?
7  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Game messing up...H&M problem? on: September 03, 2007, 09:37:54 am
I installed the H&M stuff pack today, it updated my Seasons game and also the Pets game. I loaded the game up, it froze for while whislt loading up a neighbourhood and then started to flash repeatedly instead of the neighbourhood loading. When I hover the cursor over different lots in the neighbourhood it comes up saying the name of the lot as usual except I can still only see the flashing loading screen.
The buttons along the top and bottom also show (University, Pets, Create a sim etc). I managed to click on CAS and made a sim to see if it would stop the flashing, when making the sim the game ran as usual. I then returned to the neighbourhood and it was still coming up with the flashing loading screen along with a little icon of the sim that I had just made, this was also flashing. Everytime I moved the cursor, the icon would move but leave a trail of frozen icons behind it.
I also managed to get onto university (it still didn't show neighbourhood just the loading screen again) and enter a lot which contained an insimenator. The game ran fine, except when I clicked on the insimenator only 2 options appeared: Medicine and Ask for lessons from. This happens no matter which part of the insimenator I click on.

Does anyone know if this is happening because of the new installation and has anyone else had the same problem?
Is there a chance it could be related to other custom objects in the game?
I wondering whether to unistall H&M stuff, but will the delete other parts of the game?

Thanks.
8  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Age on: June 06, 2007, 01:05:58 pm
Sorry if this has been asked before, but I have looked and cannot find it anywhere. I was just wondering how many days sims stay in each age group. So how long they are children, teenagers and adults for. And also roughly how long they stay elders for.

Thanks.
9  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Change semester on: April 09, 2007, 10:31:16 am
When in university is there a way to change what semester the sim is in (without failing exams)?
10  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Age on: March 05, 2007, 02:09:39 pm
I couldn't find this anywhere and I was just wondering if anyone knows roughly how many human years each sim day is or how old sims would be in real life when turning into toddlers, children etc. And also, how many days each life stage is...?
Thanks [=
11  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Teen pregnancy and inteen on: February 20, 2007, 01:54:02 pm
I've had the inteen before and I got rid of it because I got some new eps. Yesterday I decided to download it again. I have put it in my game and tried to use it on two teenagers, it allows them to woohoo, but there is no 'try for a baby' option which is what I need. Does anyone know what could be doing this?
12  Simmers' Paradise / General Sims 2 Help / Sims aging on: January 21, 2007, 06:50:01 am
In one of my families the daughter met a boy when she was a child. He's a sim that lives in the neighbourhood, but doesn't have a house and I did not make him. Now she's grown up into a teenager and he is still a child, will he grow up or is there anyway for me to make him grow up?
